First serious BIF attempt
12

I know it is not good, but there is an interesting story behind this.

I live next to a med size pond. From my upstairs office I noticed a large bird flying across the pond. That turned out to be a Red Tail Hawk -- pictures not good.

But, then I started noticing this Osprey circling the pond. I have a couple of iPhone videos of it diving into the pond for fish. The interesting thing, is that I live about 150+ miles from the coastline where these birds are normally found.

The photo (and 100% crop) was taken through my window with M-10 II and 40-150 4-5,6. The bird was about 300' from the camera. I was impressed. Hopefully I can get closer and on the other side of the glass.

I think I know where her nest is. She comes back several times a day. There are other ponds in the area that are probably loaded with fish.
